Minority Visiting Clerkship
Underrepresented in Medicine Visiting Clerkship Program
One of our diversity goals is to increase racial and ethnic diversity reflecting the population of the Cincinnati and surrounding community that we serve. To that end, the ODEI is now sponsoring the University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children’s Underrepresented in Medicine Visiting Clerkship Program. We will sponsor up to 12 funded visiting clerkship positions, space permitting, available from July through October for applicants from backgrounds underrepresented in medicine. This program will provide a stipend up to $1500, to help defray the cost of an away rotation, to 4th year medical students attending a U.S. medical school from backgrounds that are underrepresented in medicine including Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American/Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander.
Our program includes a 4-week clinical rotation in the departments of Anesthesia, Emergency Medicine, Internal Medicine, Neurology Ophthalmology, Orthopaedic Surgery and Pediatrics.
Minority Housestaff Association
The University of Cincinnati Minority Housestaff Association is a newly formed organization established under the direction of several residents, to create opportunities for the advancement of underrepresented house staff through mentorship, networking, professional development and community engagement.
